How we work

Magnolia is a great place to work. The founders have established a healthy, diverse and multicultural environment, based on friendliness, respect and a responsible “work/life” balance. The office itself is well located, comfortable and filled with natural light. It is not unusual for an after-work apéro on the terrace to last a few extra hours. We enjoy each other's company.  We participate in the Magnolia community by contributing to the forums, blogging, attending conferences and hosting our own annual conference. We’re passionate about what we create; design and craft matter to us -  whether it be in the graphics, the user experience or the code.
